Jheronimus Bosch Art Center

Pieterjan Grasmaijer, drawing painter

2 April 2023
7 January 2024
During our usual opening hours

From April 2nd, the Art Center proudly presents a monographic exhibition on Pieterjan Grasmaijer (1950-2017). Grasmaijer was trained at the Rietveld Academy with, among others, his contemporary Melle Boerrigter. Both artists were strongly influenced by Jheronimus Bosch in general, and his sexual symbolism in particular. Unlike Melle, Grasmaijer was a modest artist. His work has therefore remained largely unknown for a long time. Now for the first time a major exhibition focuses extensively and exclusively on his drawings and paintings. In all his works of art, Grasmaijer’s aptitude as a draughtsman is self-explanatory. With a hard pencil he accurately set up his drawings. He never had to look for the right shape through sketching. He left many hundreds of drawings, a selection of which can now be seen in the JBAC. Some of his paintings are also on display. A unique opportunity to discover this underrated artist. The exhibition will run until January 7, 2024.
